    Early 70s most likely. Still running?

    Cooling like a champ. An addition has been done and because the equipment is so old we are doing a load calc and upsizing to what is needed to add a few drops. How many tons is that thing?

    I have a guide but can't read the model # from the picture. The last digits mean everything
    Is there a serial #

    From my guide if the model # reads: CFC030A3, it can be from 1967 to 1970. I can't decipher the last digits so maybe the year indicator is there.

    Don't mean to be rude or offend, but how did you become a professional member and can't tell tonnage from a model number? 9 times out of 10 the model number tell you the tonnage of the unit.

    My guess was a 30 (2 1/2) ton. I've only been doing it a year and most of my work has been installs. Very little service. That is changing this year. I am beginning to get into the service part of the business. Most people I see run around knowing "everything" I don't want to be that person. Hardheaded and scared to ask question because that might just hurt my ego. There are plenty of techs out there like that. The field doesn't need me to be like that. So instead of going off my assumptions and presenting them as facts like most of the people I know I try to know my place. I didn't "know" what ton/year that was. Give me a newer model/serial of just about anything main stream and ill tell you year, month, factory, ton...... Whatever that model/serial has available. Just tying to not be another know it all.

    good answer Bryan not all of us get to work on one specific area. I work on everything from waffle iron to 500 ton absorbtion chillers. Can't be an expert on all.

    Always safer to ask than assume and be wrong.

    How many of you guys, especially younger, know what since this old Carrier is: 38CU004300 ? And look at how many are confused with a Lennox HS9-411?
